@Moleoman: I discovered this on Kadry ze starej telewizji and found the source footage, a TV3 Gdansk announcer mentioning the start of the station's relays of TV Polonia, however featuring a leaflet of the service under its prototype name:

Warsaw's center wouldn't get its own service until January 1994, when it replaced Channel 1 Ostankino (moved to another UHF slot, later vacated), although initially it was known as Channel 51. The WOT name was adopted by the channel a few months later.

1 hour and 35 minutes left, and CNN Portugal launches. The last program before closure, as of TVI Player website, will be Journal 24.

Let's hope the launch won't be like CNN Prima News, and look different than ever.

They want CNN Portugal to be new and different as far as I know
I was wishing to see a better launch like any other CNN channel, but not like CNN Prima one, by looking at CNN Prima graphics. Hopefully, the logo will be on the bottom as usual as any other CNN channel, just like CNN International, CNN Türk, & CNN Brazil.

According to a recent mistake conducted overnight days ago, the bug will be below.

About half an hour, TVI24, started their last transmission with CNN Portugal ceremony coverage.

After that, moment ago, it’s now in break.

EDIT: Back after the last ever break.

In the ceremony, the DOG on the ceremony screen looks white from what I saw before the guest comes on the stage.

The final broadcasts with TVI24 memories.

The channel has switched to CNN Portugal with countdown.

It's official:

The logo went to the bottom, and it's graphics looking like CNN US/International. The launch of this channel is much better than CNN Prima News launch, which looks different in graphics.

EDIT:
The full video for CNN Portugal’s launch is there.


Summary:
The anchor signed-off TVI24 after cutting the coverage from CNN Portugal’s Launch Ceremony, before showing a memorial 10 minute video of TVI24 and its DOG disappearing from the screen for the last time, and when it faded to the TVI24 logo in the middle, it appruptly cut the signal to CNN Portugal with the countdown and a three minute promo of CNN Portugal. At 21:00 GMT/22:00 CET/00:00 (KSA and MSK), the first program after the launch was Journal Da CNN, signing on by Judite Sousa.

On December 1, 2021, Star Gold Romance, Star Gold Thrills, Jalsha Josh, Star Gold 2 HD, Star Sports 1 Tamil HD, Star Sports 1 Telugu HD, Star Movies Select, Disney Channel HD India, and Hungama HD may launch (launch date not final, like Super Hungama, which in news sources said December 1 but actually December 11 thanks to promos of the said channel, including Big City Greens (which is going to air on that channel) promo)

i already posted about Super Hungama on international Disney Networks forum because you know what, Hungama TV is part of Disney international channels.

Making a channel focused solely on Marvel superheroes (and not tapping into their past at that) was dumb. I'm not surprised at Marvel HQ and it's drift into an anime network, but the timing of the drift was actually surprising (Marvel HQ drifted in 3 months [if I recall], most cablecasts drift away from their intended format after several years barring premiums).
Knowing the rut Hungama's in now (near-constant Shin-Chan), I feel that Super Hungama will be more of the same.

If I had to guess Super Hungama is similar to Marvel HQ but doesn't limit itself to Marvel Animation and anime. If only WarnerMedia could do that with Toonami Africa. The channel has such a resemblance to Marvel HQ.

US-based investment company KKR has made an offer to take Telecom Italia (TIM) private for €10.8 billion: TIM receives €10.8 billion takeover offer from KKR

Also I think Super Hungama is a silly name, it implies that the original main Hungama isn't as good. :D
Hm... Currently, TIM is (partially???) in the hands of Bolloré, the Vivendi guy. That's one big offer, that's for sure.
Tbh, it's kinda sad that TIM had to sell La7, its early years were pretty cool. Nowadays, the channel is the shadow of a better past.

Hungama isn't that good, IMHO.

Yes, Vivendi owns approximately 25% of TIM, and they have no intention in selling it. TIM's top investor Vivendi digs in after KKR's approach

I was speaking in relative terms. :D

Offically Confirmed: BBC Three will return as a broadcast channel in early February 2022 following a decision by Ofcom. BBC Three to return as TV channel

At last!

So TIM might become an American company..

Update: Euronews won't shutdown the Hungarian feed, so what did @RONTV said was fake news.
Megint cáfolja az Euronews, hogy megszüntetné a magyar adást | Media1
I was wishing if that came true, and that Euronews could slowly return back to normal as being a (single) multilingual news channel, as NBCUniversal/Comcast no longer have ownership stakes in the channel, since last year.

But unfortunately, Euronews Hungary is here to stay, with having presenters on Euronews channels.

I'm very sorry, but I prefer completely Hungarian variants rather than pan-European ones.
